The treatment of boiler feed water leads to better heat exchange, corrosion protection and high quality steam production ensuring a reliable and long-lasting operation.

Treatment involves removal of suspended particles, softening, de-aeration and further conditioning using special chemicals. The softening prevents scaling inside boiler tubes caused by water hardness while de-aeration removes dissolved oxygen to prevent internal corrosion.

The purpose of conditioning chemical treatment is to,

  • • React with any hardness remaining after softener to prevent scaling.
  • • Condition iron sludge and hardness sludge and make them non adherent to surfaces.
  • • Remove foam and prevent carryoverof fine water particles with steam.
  • • Remove dissolved oxygen
